Irish bagpipes solo, Columbia A2309. Fitzpatrick was a Leitrim flute player who learned the Highland pipes as a teenager in Scotland, and took up the Irish pipes in America. He was a sucessful buisnessman who built a venue, Celtic Hall, in New York City, and also toured with various vaudeville companies. His simple lively piping, augmented by his intermittent taps and chords on his regulators, is typical of the pipers recorded in America at this time. This tune was also recorded by Patsy Touhey on a wax cylinder; as with many of his recordings it begins with a spoken announcement, the only part of which was audible is "Drops of Brandy, by Patsy Touhey." This reel is unrelated to the slip jig the Drops of Brandy. Flute player John McKenna, also from Leitrim, recorded a reel with the same first part, Lucky in Love, which became well known from his recording. Most of Fitzpatrick's sides were of single tunes, possibly intended for dancers to use.
